The Kingdom of Old Uppland is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 340 million Old Upplenders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uppsala. The average income tax rate is 64.7%.

The powerhouse Old Upplandian economy, worth 28.7 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,469 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, torture is illegal, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old Uppland's national animal is the moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Old Uppland is ranked 29,833rd in the world and 1,241st in The East Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 1,864.45 milliStalins.
